Goree: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander News from the National Museum of Australia

 

WARNING: Visitors should be aware that this website includes images and names of deceased people that may cause sadness or distress to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.


The Goree newsletter looks at the activities and achievements of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Program (ATSIP) and all the programs across the National Museum of Australia that engage with Indigenous peoples and their material culture.

Goree means Bogong moth. The name was chosen because it relates to the history of Acton, in Canberra where the Museum is located. Both the Acton site and the goree are significant to the Ngambri of Canberra. 'Goree' is a Walgalu language word from the Ngambri nation.

The Museum would like to thank Paul House for suggesting the name for this publication and the local communities of Canberra for their continued support and engagement with the Museum.

Goree was a bi-annual newsletter. Goree is now presented in a new format on our website and is frequently updated with new content.
